ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the insufficiency of evidence to sustain screening for oral cancer. The author says that support for oral cancer screening programmes in primary care is upheld by people who have interests in adjunctive technologies, yet even the Cochrane review and American Dental Association (ADA) clinical recommendations failed to find robust evidence. The author discusses the role of dental teams in the early detection and management of oral cancer.
